Module One:

  • Minor Design Module - Students develop a design concept through an understanding of the intended users, electronic media, technology platforms and processes, and the intended function of the design.

 


 

Module Two:

  • Major Design Module - Students are expected to question, develop and address the nature and characteristics of a complex design problem and to establish the functional, contextual, visual and technological basis for a design response. Students produce substantial design solutions that are resolved, technically sound, sustainable, and responsible. 

 


 

Module Three:

  • Critical Studies research paper - Students are required to present and finalise a research paper (long essay) of approximately six thousand words. The research topics and areas of study will be driven through individual student research interests as they apply to their specific design orientations and in consultation with Critical studies lecturers.
